PAKW vs UAEW Match Preview

It has been a rollercoaster ride for the Pakistan women's cricket team in the last few days. They had to endure a shock defeat at the hands of Thailand on Thursday but, they bounced back immediately on the next day to defeat arch-rivals India women by a margin of 13 runs on Friday. Pakistan women's team is currently lying in the second spot and is level on points with India who are placed at the top of the table. In the game against India, Nida Dar picked up the player of the match award. She was the main contributor to Pakistan's victory when she scored 56 runs from 37 balls. It was a top innings under intense pressure. She hit one six and five fours. Apart from her Sidra Ameen is the second-largest run-scorer in the competition? No one expected the Pakistan cricket team to lose against Thailand women. But no one expected them to beat India either. These Pakistani women cricketers can be inconsistent but they are also a dangerous side on their day.

It has arguably been a tough competition so far for the United Arab Emirates women’s team. This team is participating in its first-ever Asia Cup competition. Although they have lost 3 matches in a row, they did pick up their first victory as well when they defeated Malaysia women by 7 wickets on Wednesday. UAE women bowlers have managed to pick 22 wickets in the 4 games they have played. The maximum number of wickets they picked was against Sri Lanka women where they took nine wickets. Mahika Gaur is their leading wicket-taker with five wickets so far. UAE women's cricket team proved to be too strong for the Malaysian cricket team. However, all the other opponents they faced in the competition were a bit too good for them.

Dream11 Prediction

Depending on the current form of the Pakistan women's cricket team, it is easy to assume that they start as clear favorites to win this match against the UAE women. There are likes of Nashra Sandhu, Bismah Maroof, and Nida Dar in the Pakistani batting line-up who are keen to seal their place in the finals. We will bet with the Pakistani women to win this game and secure a place in the finals.

Top Picks

Sidra Ameen: Even though Sidra Ameen scored just 11 runs in the game against India, she has been in terrific form of late in the Pakistan women's campaign. You can back her to be the top run-getter for Pakistan against UAE women.

Nida Dar: Nida Dar has picked up a couple of wickets from each of her last 3 games. Not only that she has also scored many runs with the bat. This is one terrific all-rounder for Pakistan and you can back her to do well in this game again.

Mahika Gaur: Mahika Gaur has been a threat to batters right throughout the competition. She is expected to be the top wicket-taker for UAE women in this match as well.

Kavisha Egodage: Kavisha Egodage has done well with the bat for UAE in this tournament. She has scored 194 runs from 10 games at a batting average of 32.33. But her strike rate has unfortunately been pretty low at 68.55. She had to anchor the innings for her team as it was in trouble many times during the competition.
